The Island of Krk or the "Golden Island", as named in antiquity, is located in one of the sunniest parts of Europe. This northernmost and largest Adriatic island is also the island with the biggest number of populated areas. Connected to the mainland by a bridge and to another three islands, Rab, Cres and Lošinj, by a ferry, it is an ideal place to live or spend a holiday. Krk offers perfect island peace and crystal clear sea, but due to its excellent transport links one can easily move around this entire diverse region. The Town of Krk is the second largest island town in Croatia as well as the most developed Croatian island town in terms of infrastructure and economy. It is located in a broad valley in a sunny southwestern part of the island and is one of the oldest urban settlements in Croatia.

It has been there for more than 3000 years and even today its rich history can be seen and felt at every step, in the churches, monasteries, narrow and hidden alleys, squares and portals with crests of noble families. Its town walls are the third largest in Croatia, after the walls of Ston and Dubrovnik, the town’s most famous motifs being the cathedral from the 5th century and the castle built by the ruling Frankopan family. However, the life of the town is not a thing of the past. It is very alive, boosted by the hospitality industry whose beginnings can be traced back to the early Middle Ages. A rich cultural, gastronomic and sports offer provides a quality of life even outside the tourist season.

 

[GALLERY] With events ranging from one of the longest running folk festivals in Croatia, to vocal group singing concerts, ballet, classical music concerts and theatrical performances — Krk will suit every cultural taste. After a sports activity or walking in the fresh air, it is best to enjoy local specialties of light Mediterranean cuisine and a glass of local wine.
